The Force is Strong With This Nursery

Monday, January 23, 2012

Shannon just sent me a link to the most amazing Star Wars themed nursery over on Apartment Therapy. Check this out:

Color-changing lightsaber sconces! YES. (And how perfect is that quote?)

I love the modern bold lines, and that mom Abby didn't go overboard with the details. Plus, no need to break out the paintbrush, the quote and wall art are all wall-decals!

I'm also digging that silhouette mobile. It was purchased here on Etsy, but I bet you could DIY something similar with heavy cardstock.

Here's a close-up:

And how about a version that uses ships from all different shows? I'm thinking Serenity, the Enterprise, the TARDIS, a few TIE-fighters...aw yeeeeah.


But perhaps the best part of this Force-full nursery? The Wampa-skin rug, of course!

It's gettin' Hoth in here!

There's also plenty of squee-worthy toys and an adorable Boba Fett lamp and more wall art and such, so go see the full picture slide show on the original post here. They also include a handy list of shopping links for all the goodies, which is both helpful and very dangerous. (Where can I hang some lightsaber sconces, guys? I mean, is the guest bathroom appropriate?)

  1. Uber geeky cute. But OMG. The wompa skin rug is going to eat me. I think that would have to go.

  2. Um...yup, I love this. I've already told my husband our kids' rooms will be Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Star Wars themed. Now, to get started on kids...

  3. I'm pretty sure lightsaber sconces are appropriate where ever you decide to put them.

    I do have to agree with the comment about the wompa rug. It's scary!

  4. You can get them at thinkgeek.com. They are about $30 a piece (I got mine for free because I had so many geek points).

  6. Absolutely fantastic! What a great way to start out the next generation of nerd! I love it all, wish I would have thought to do that with my children!

  7. Guest bathroom is totally appropriate. Or a hallway. or do a whole guest room!

    I was very seriously considering doing a similar nursery, but we were also looking at naming the baby Luke after a relative. But it seemed too over the top to have a star wars nursery for a baby named Luke.

    So, we're going with the Muppets instead :-)

  8. Where is it NOT appropriate to hang light sabers?

    A long time ago, in another life, I had a Mickey Mouse bathroom. At the time Disney was not cashing in on Disney lovers as much as they do now, so it was mostly accomplished with stickers and red, white and black towels. But it was the highlight of my first apartment, I tell you! So, what I am saying is, "YES! The guest bathroom is the perfect place for color changing light saber wall sconces!"

  10. You've probably seen these, but my brother got these for my baby for Christmas. I think the little AT-AT would look great in this nursery!

  11. Awesome! I got my 15 year old nephew one of the wall lights this last Christmas. I want to get a couple more to put up in our living room.

  12. Have you seen the line of Star Wars valentine gifts at Target? It's super funny and cute - they even have a heart-shaped box of chocolates with Yoda's face in green rhinestones.

  13. Of course the guest bathroom is appropriate! But then, where wouldn't be?

  14. Aw, now I have to go make a baby. *sigh* The things I do to keep up with my fellow geeks.

  15. Forget wampa throw rug. I've been wanting a tauntaun sleeping bag for eons.

    Also I am feeling melancholy and sorry for myself today. Maybe I need to wander down the street, pantless and with chocolate in my hair. Does that work?

  16. Absolutely the guest bathroom is appropriate! I have a wizard potty at my house. Bathrooms are a great place for a theme.

  17. Hmmmm I've noticed a slew of baby-themed posts lately on Epbot. Are you trying to tell us something Jen????

  18. Jen - the Bathroom is perfect for thematic goodness. I have an entirely comic-book character themed bathroom. And it's the main bathroom in the house. When I get a minute at home I will have to share that with you!

  19. My husband, who never gets ooey-gooey about baby things, saw that I "liked" this on FB and when I got home begged me to do this for our future nursery.
    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
    PS-I like your idea of making a mobile with different ships (i.e. Serenity, TARDIS, Millenium Falcon)

  20. The foyer is a good place for the light saber scones. Or the dining room.

  21. Love it! I feel woefully bummed that these things never occur to me at the time that they should. Oh, Jen, if only you were in my life ten years ago.
    Should I ever actually have a guest room in my house, I will fight my sometimes fuddy-duddy DH for some much needed geek/nerd decor.

  22. Absolutely love this room. I have a 19 year old, who first saw Star Wars about about three and was absolutely terrified of the "Willie Wonka" monster, so I had to crack up at the wompa skin rug at the end.

  23. Oh my, I saw this room a few months ago and love it, I only wish I had this idea for my boys when they were babies, but it probably would have ended up being more spaceballs than star wars, bahahaha! My boys have recently discovered star wars And this room is inspiring me to geek up their blank bed rooms a bit.

  24. I am so very jealous! This is the coolest nursery ever.

  25. My sons got the lightsaber nightlights/sconces from Sears (in Canada). They were Christmas presents 2 years ago. I LOVE this nursery!

  26. Your decals instead of paint comment made me very sad! I painted a cherry tree on a nursery wall and I charged a hundred dollar less than if she had bought the decal in the magazine instead, and I'm pretty sure the one I painted was also bigger.

    With a little bit of searching and e-mailing you can easily find starving artists with tons of talent, usually art students, who will do original paintings, murals, and drawings for very cheap, and nothing is mass-produced!

    Decals might be more convenient but hand-painted things have much more character and last longer!
